I welcome the announcement of additional funding in the amount of €297,073 for Tuam Stadium under the Capital Sports Grants Scheme.

“This funding is the third tranche of funding under the scheme for the stadium”.

“The works to be carried out under this scheme will fund additional access and upgrades of the old changing rooms”.

“The positive news is in addition to the proposal to replace the old roof on the stand. This project is well advanced, and I acknowledge the generosity of the late Joe O’Toole in providing funding for this project”.

“Tuam Stadium has seen many improvements and I expect that following the works now planned we will provide a modern sports facility in Tuam which is the heart of Galway football”.
